Eating Habits

Patch is a very bad eater. He doesn't like to eat anything with pasta. He likes to have a "sammich," but only sometimes. He likes cheese, every once in a while, and only if it's cheddar. He's not even consistent with junk food. The only thing he will eat anytime anywhere is fruit snacks. Sugary-have-nothing-to-do-with-real-fruit-snacks.

Mini-me is a very slow eater. It took her over half an hour to eat one pop tart the other morning. I like to call her "Gammy Mabel," after my great-grandmother. I don't really remember eating with her, but it's what my mom used to call my sister when she ate slowly.

Flower has become more adventurous in her eating. She now eats salad (!) and crunchy granola bars. She has come a long way. She still won't touch syrup or powdered sugar.

I have to give all three kids vitamins. This is because veggies are not their friends. Patch will not touch one. I am hoping he grows out of this, as veggies are delicious. I may have to break out "Deceptively Delicious" in the next few weeks, even though Curly thinks it's a little weird.

Your kids eat crab legs, which is quite adventuresome. My daughter still won't touch them :).

Keep trying them on veggies. The more they see it the more they might be will to try it. What's wrong with syrup?
